To impulsively travel around wherever and whenever I want to, doing cool stuff like this to show people that there is still some awesomeness in life, even when most of it sucks. Right now, riding the train for 3-4 days at a time sounds like the most fun thing in the world to me. Damn ENFP restlessness.
The thing I'd get rid of is my laziness. If I could work hard for about six months, I'd be able to make it all happen...I just can't quite get started.

Yeh, I want a job where I'm free, but still challenged. Can go anywhere and don't have to be tied to one city, or a 9-5 schedule, or anything.
Freude, schĂ¶ner GĂ¶tterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden BrĂĽder, Wo dein sanfter FlĂĽgel weilt.
I feel like I have at least one but more like many some fundamental blockages holdings me back and preventing me from being who I want and need to be. So if I could change ONE thing about myself, I would clear that blockage so I could flow, like water, through life and be the force I was meant to be.
I've used the analogy of water before, and I stand by it.
Currently, I feel frustrated.
I want to feel Authentic and I want to feel Alive.
On a superficial level this means I wish I were more honest, or just honest. I wish I could handle, process, and express the emotions of anger and sadness better, without shame, guilt, fear, self-consciousness, or hang ups.
I wish I could be terrified of things and still jump in, both arms ready to embrace the future.
This section of your post resonated with me.
This is exactly what I want more than anything. I've been stuck in that state of mind for years...
Finally, an ENFP that speaks my language..
Since you've posted so much here, meaning you've probably discussed the MBTI far more than I'll ever will... Could you venture a guess as to why this occurs? Is it a common ENFP thing? [Is it an ENFP thing at all?] And if so, could you elaborate on which functions are involved in this blockade?
I would greatly appreciate any bit of information, even random epiphanies or anecdotes or whatever.
^You're not talking to me (and I don't really know that much about MBTI), but I know that for me, I'm blocked by uncertainty in Fi. When I know my actions are right, I'm okay. When I know my actions are wrong, it's hard, but I'm okay. When I can't tell if I'm right and should assert myself, or if I'm wrong and should sit down and be quiet, then I'm lost. And then I demand certainty in Fi for things before I act, but how are you ever going to get 100% certainty for which action is wrong or right if you don't already know...?

I would be well. And then I would get my punk band off the ground.
When I was a kid, my dream was that Duran Duran would rescue me from school, and take me to live in London, where I would be Simon LeBon's supermodel girlfriend. lol That dream kept me from going insane during math class.
